January WIPocalypse

It's WIPocalypse time. Measi started this fun SAL to get us to work on our stitching before the end of world hence WIPocalypse. I've really enjoyed joining in. I like to use this SAL as an excuse to keep track of how many days I spend stitching on what. I will post progress pictures so that way I can look back and see what I've gotten done throughout the year. She also gives us fun questions we can answer each time too.  This month's question is  – What SAL’s are you participating in this year?

Let's see. I'm doing the WIPocalypse of course. I'm also doing the Smalls SAL which I'm stitching the monthly snapshots for the year. I joined in the Under the Sea SAL too. Since the octopus was too cute not to stitch and I can't wait to see what's coming up. I also join in the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL where we post about things we are either stitching for gifts or have received as a gift. My main goal is to make as much progress and maybe even finish the Family Crest piece for my Grandpa. I also join in the IHSW (International Hermit Stitch Weekend) when it is going on. It's a SAL where we stitch together on the 3rd full weekend of the month. Of course this time of year I'm really a hermit most the time haha. So I definitely have a lot of excuses to stitch this year. Now to do the stitching!

So let's see what I've been working on since the beginning of the year...
